Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Dayton

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-T021
Budget: 07/11/07 - 05/11/08

Steel and aluminum plates can be joined to PMC plates using patented Dynamic Polymer Composite (DPC) techniques. Dynamic Joining begins with an edge-weldment to a metal plate. This edge is then dynamically mated to a super-plasticized strip of a composite panel. Adhesive plays a minor role. The result is a lap-joint more capable of tension, mome...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO02-012
Budget: 10/16/03 - 10/15/08

This stress-profiling research is an important component for weight savings on the MDA funded Airborne Laser. Both deployable and airborne systems are candidates. The objectives are to cut piping weight and cost by half. Prestressed composite cryogenic piping (US Patent 6,325,108) adds a layer of circumferential prestress to cured PMC pipe. Pres...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Dayton

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA03T-004
Budget: 09/17/03 - 06/28/04

Most SOG processes for the COIL exceed the carrying capacity of the ABL airframe. The key to SOG weight savings is to recycle and recharge an exchange media after each laser discharge. A recharge process reduces the weight of the exchange media by 80% compared to loading charged BHP media for an entire flight. All SOG recharging excites the ox...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO02-012
Budget: 05/01/02 - 02/01/03

This research strikes at two barriers to using polymer matrix composites (PMC) for rocket lines and ducts, (1) delamination and (2) tension micro cracks. The objectives are to cut both launch weight and cost by half by replacing heavy, expensive alloy pipe. Prestressed composite cryogenic piping (US Patent 6,325,108 issued 4Dec01) adds a layer ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO00-013
Budget: 07/30/01 - 07/29/03

This Phase II research eill remove the two major barriers to converting metal alloy rocket engine lines and ducts to polymer matrix composites (PMC). These barriers are (1) unreliable composite flange joints, and (2) heavy, expensive metal alloy bellows. The objectives are to cut both launch weight and cost by half. Dynamic Polymer Composite...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO00-013
Budget: 05/09/00 - 11/08/00

The conversion of alloy rocket engine ducts and lines to lighter, polymer composites raises the issues of cost effective joining/assembly for cryogenic operations. Dynamic Polymer Composite (DPC) connectors use the release of circumferential prestress to clamp cylindrical lines, ducts, and valves with forces as strong as the members themselves. ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF97-007
Budget: 04/23/98 - 04/23/00

Optimal performance of AF maintenance technicians is essential to the logistics mission. Over the past decade the USAF Armstrong Laboratory Logistics Research Division (AL/HRG) has studies the feasibility of providing aircraft maintenance data on portable computing devices. Recent efforts have focused on wearable computers equipped with head-m...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A96-179
Budget: 12/11/97 - 12/11/99

TACOM has identified suspension lubrication as both mission critical and cost intensive. The goal is to lubricate a vehicle continuously for two years. Single-point lubricators based on dynamic polymer composites (DPC) were reported on in August 1995 under TACOM DAAEO7-94Q-BAA2. The theoretical basis has since been expanded and component func...

Topic: AF97-007
Budget: 04/25/97 - 01/25/98

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF96-177
Budget: 04/09/97 - 04/09/99

Acceptance of composites for aircraft is limited by manufacturing and repair costs. The lack of joining techniques tend to force composite aircraft designs into unified stress-flow structures. Unified structures preclude the economies and safety of component replacement that is the aircraft industry standard A new family of composite connectors...
